Abstract Through many name changes, from the Office of Program Development and Evaluation, the Office of Research and Evaluation, to the current, Office of Behavioral Safety Research, our focus has remained on improving the safety of drivers, occupants, pedestrians, and all road users. This office conducts studies, evaluations and projects that include laboratory research, field studies, national surveys, and analyses of observational and archival data. Our work over the past decades has significantly enhanced law enforcement strategies, strengthened community traffic safety programs, informed policy decisions, examined emerging issues, and helped to decrease lives lost to motor vehicle crashes. This compendium contains brief summaries of research on alcohol-involved driving, drug-involved driving, occupant protection (e.g., seat belts, and child safety seats), speed and other unsafe driving behaviors, motorcyclist safety, pedestrian and bicyclist safety, older driver safety, novice and young driver safety, fatigue and distraction, and emergency medical services. This document updates previous versions, both by adding entries since the previous version was released in 1996, and also adding two additional early years 1985 and 1986. A new feature is that most of the entries in the electronic version of this document include hyperlinks directly to the listed reports.
